Masters in Child and Adolescent Development

Masters in Child and Adolescent Development

For those that pursue a Master's in Child and Adolescent Development, classes focus upon advanced human development, development in infancy and early childhood, development from middle childhood to adolescents, statistics, linear models, and qualitative research methods. Most students that pursue this Masters degree often plan to go ahead and get a PhD in the subject as well. That influences the exact set of classes they plan to take while getting their degree. Most people with this level of degree plan to work in healthcare, government, education, or social service areas. They can also move into leadership positions in all of these areas.

Many of those interested in this degree also have busy professional and family lives. Going to traditional classes often makes a busy life crazy. That is why more people are turning to online degrees in order to advance their education. Child and Adolescent Development Master's Programs that come from online degree programs carry the same professional strength as those earned by taking classes in traditional university campus classrooms. These classes are less expensive and radically more convenient to students trying to advance their education while raising a family. You will find many traditional universities offer online degrees.

As long as there are children in the world, there will always be a need for educators. And educators will always need leaders. That means that those that want to advance their education and take leadership roles can often find spots to work in. This is especially true in growing urban areas. Salaries for those fresh out of college depend greatly on where they live and whether they worked in government or private industry. In some areas of the country, the beginning salary is as low as $30,000 per year while in others it can be upwards of $60,000 per year.
